The Sound of Noise

Pédilüv is a radio art programme, produced at Campus Radio in Paris. This episode, The Sound of Noise, has more English language content than usual, from a range of sources: The Global Theatre of the Air, Adam Boham, The Poo Lord,  John Cage, and the BBC Radiophonic Workshop.

The Birdie Song

The artist Marcus Coates recorded the dawn chorus in English woodlands; he then slowed down the recordings, and filmed human singers perform the newly approachable songs in everyday English settings. Then, he speeded the footage back up again.  The sound is extraordianary – and in this case, so is the video.

Colour Matters

 

Colour Matters is a series of seven programmes about… colours. It was broadcast in 2005 on RTÉ, in Ireland, and the colours are at times seen through the filters of domestic sports – along with many other European and universal views: artistic, psychological, emotional, physical, spiritual. And with some catchy songs chucked in for good value.

Yamamoto's Waves

East London + former local power station = arts space, inevitably. The artistic creation on display in this particular one is breathtaking, in a gentle, philosophical way as captured in this piece. The space is dark and engrossing, as you'll hear. Adding to the paradoxes is the knowledge that the designer of the physical artwork is fashion designer Yohi Yamamoto.
